Computer: State your business

Barbara: Permission to come aboard.

Computer: We are not expecting visitors. What is the nature of your business.

Barbara: Uh, well, we need to move our staff and belongings to another location, and K-7 suits us well. We have kittens.

Computer: Kittens. We have no need of kittens.

Barbara: We have a trombone and a juke box and even a 20th century pool table.

Computer: We have no need of any of those relics.

Barbara: We have Terrilynn and her boots!

Computer: Permission granted.

*Barbara arrives safely with all the former bar’s important items. Pool table in the corner; sticks on the rack on the wall. Juke box in the center for everyone to enjoy. Pink2 made it in one piece. The infamous Riker trombone for Terrilynn hung over the bar. So many more items to unpack! Barbara sits behind the bar, and waits for the first patrons.*

Whenever there's a Canadian on my mind - when he's not flying high in the sky - I hear the word moral officer. I would rather say that TU has a moral team (Babs, Trekkin', Pauline...).


Strangely enough, I drive tanks for a living now.

And maybe there should be a moral team, but you came to mind first cause your the one who always sends birthday wishes. Even when i never around or back when I didn't have a clue who you were. :P

It is still ironic that Raptor became popular during a crises at TU (fedconusa), and that the last crisis again enhanced his popularity.

Is it moral, or morale? I guess what I'm saying is even though we probably should have someone to step in and tell us when we make questionable decisions, ethically speaking, I think everyone should be adding an "e" there. :err:

That was a freakin' wild ride for me...back reading and then transporting to this new locale (there's that elusive 'e' you were talking about, apoco..... )

NOW, should be a good evening, since the day went so hard.....but I had a good one at that.

Oh, and I snuck in the poker table, with the cards and chips intact (heee heee, heeee ! )

Pink2, what are you brewing here.....and don't get too near me Plaz....I am REVVED from my Earl Grey at lunch and I plan to take it up with you next time I see you...... It's strangely appealing, though,having that extra caffeine coursing through my veins so you may have awakened a sleeping dragon....no, make that a gryphon.... dang, i NEED FOOD!

That's for tomorrow.....it's my meatless day. Today was a grilled chcken salad, with homemade salsa and greek yogurt dressing. I filled my somewhat empty tummy with microwave popcorn....and LOTS of liquids. I'm looking forward to the lasagne.....


okaaayyyy it's after midnight here, so make that later on today..... :rolleyes:


And now I must bid adieu, and good night, it's a busy day tomorrow. Have Fun!

*Droney walks in, still dressed in her 19th century London gown*

...Hmmmmm. K-7, eh? Interesting choice.

Poor, naive Droney... how do you explain cootie shots, then? :rolleyes:


*shakes head* You're the naive one. There's no such things as cooties; and there's no such things as cooties shots.


boys have cooties. there's shots though....


Nuh-uh.

From our perspective, it is you who have the cooties.


Girls have cooties? :blink:

Wait a minute...if boys have cooties (not saying they do...hypothetically speaking here) and girls also have cooties, then why is everyone bothered by the fact that the other gender has the same 'disease' as they do?

It is still ironic that Raptor became popular during a crises at TU (fedconusa), and that the last crisis again enhanced his popularity.


Just out of curiosity, I checked my user rating. 5 stars; I feel loved here.

Which reminds me...No one wants to claim me these days. My parents and sister were running around today packing up our stuff (we're going to the beach tomorrow) and they were screaming at me to bring the stuff that wouldn't fit into my suitcase into the living room so they could put it in the spare suitcase...

Me: OK, so this is the stuff I can't cram into my suitcase. *dumps new crochet needle, 2 t-shirts, a bag of goldfish, an Astronomy magazine, a wallet made out of Coke cans, and some pants onto the floor*

Mom: You can't take Goldfish onto the plane!?

Me: I brought some back from the States three years ago!?

Dad: She has a point...

Mom: Leave us alone and go pack your stuff up!

Dad: ...*storms into the other room to pack his stuff*

Mom: Put the freakin' Goldfish in the outer pocket. I CAN'T FIT ALL OF YOUR CRAP INTO THIS SUITCASE, UNDERSTAND?

Me: But...but...

Mom: DARYL!

Dad: *peers into the living room*

Mom: Will you PLEASE tell your daughter that she can't bring all of this stuff?

Dad: Whoah, whoah. She's our daughter. *walks into the other room to examine my suitcase* *notices that it's basically clothes and books crammed everywhere* She's your daughter, actually.

Mom: If it wasn't for you we wouldn't be having this problem!

Me: What did I do...?

Mom: GO PACK YOUR STUFF YOURSELF, MOOK!

Me: Hey, please don't call me that!

Dad: It's your official nickname...

Mom: Blame your dad for it.

Me: I don't like it.

Mom/Dad: GO PACK YOUR STUFF.

*sigh* Not such a great day today. I'll have a coffee, please; hot, black.

Damn it, explaining the joke makes it unfunny...
There was a certain irony in my post (that I intended, by the way). Yes, of course the naive person would insist that cooties exist, which is why it's funny that I'm implying you are the naive one. Joke ruined. Thanks for comin'. :P

Wait a minute...if boys have cooties (not saying they do...hypothetically speaking here) and girls also have cooties, then why is everyone bothered by the fact that the other gender has the same 'disease' as they do?

Because we're all just kidding around. :rolleyes:

Of course. I'm an unfunny person...

It's the end of the world.

I was just informed that...that...I have to go back to America this September for sure. I've been dreading this day for...a long time. I haven't been back in nearly 3 years. Everything's changed. This will be the last time I go back before I go to college, so that makes things THAT MUCH MORE FUN. I don't want to go back, I don't want to go back, I don't want to go baaacckkk...

You live there. You're like...American. I've been in America for 2 months in the past four years. I'm used to seeing Asian people every day. I'm used to people understanding me when I randomly go off in Korean. I'm NOT used to having to explain what a 'seoung kyeoung chek' is, nor am I used to seeing a whole bunch of white people who speak English.

And because of this darn trip to America, I can't go to camp, I can't go to Chengdu, I can't go to Europe.

You should teach us all some Korean swears. It'll almost be like Firefly.
That is, if you're willing to bend the "no swearing" rule a little. It doesn't count if it's not out loud.

Also, we're not all white people.

Even so, most people in America speak English. Most people in China don't. It's even weird here in Thailand; most foreigners here are British. And boy, are there a lot of foreigners here! My sister and I aren't used to seeing new 'white' faces, so we tend to stare when we do see one...we've freaked several people out already. :upsidedown:

I know a Korean swear; there's really only one. There aren't Korean words for English swears. It's actually quite funny, because the English translation for the Korean swear word is '18 dog baby'. :rofl1:

Hence, if you ever wanted to swear in Korean, you would say ship-pahl-keh-ah-gi. From what I understand, Koreans use it much like English-speakers use f***.

However, Chinese people have several swear words. It's a cultural difference, I believe. Koreans are rather polite, and this rarely ever need to use swear words. Chinese people, on the other hand, are rather rude, and use swear words often. I can't remember what it is in Chinese, but I know one of their swear words translates into 'turtle egg'. It's rather like calling someone a b****, I think. Then there's the Chinese word for f***. I can't even begin to explain it to you...the tones make it difficult.

And now I feel slightly sinful at the fact I can explain Korean and Chinese swear words.
